The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
Again a bit of a mixed week, still with meh moments, but also some good parts. It felt like my mood went up and down the whole time, it’s a bit tiring actually. But I am glad there were quite some good moments as well this week, I hope that trend continues. I got my assistant work hours done for the week and a tour I organized took place. I also sent out the media kit for next weeks tour.
This week I tried going outside a bit more often and we went for a few walks. We also got snow one day, yay! We hadn’t gotten snow yet this year and I am glad we got some after all and we could enjoy it this time. We spent some time walking through the snow and we made a small snowman. It was lots of fun. By now all the snow is gone already again, so I am really glad we could enjoy it while the snow was falling as it turns to mush so fast and then disappears.
This year one of my goals is to clean out my shelves and donate the books I don’t want to keep. I found out we have a few free little libraries in the town where I live so I visited two close to me. They don’t seem as popular as the one in our grocery store, but I dropped a few books off at each of them and some more at the grocery store one.
I had to throw away two plants this week that had died. One plant never did well here and no matter what I tried it just never did well. The other did great until it got colder this month and it suddenly went downwards very fast. I plan to buy some new plants in spring to fill up the empty pots.
And I cleaned out some things. I am always amazed at how much stuff we accumulate and it’s my goal to slowly works through things and throw away the things we don’t want and need anymore. It’s a slow progress, but it’s great to see a bit of improvement every now and then.
I also finished a puzzle this week and managed to read three books this week and bought a few new books too.
What did I read this week?
Not Dead Yet was a great read with a fun and well done combination of genres, paranormal, romance, suspense and mystery all blend together in an engaging read. Lonely Shore was a great sequel, even tough it was a bit sad, it also was a great read and showed the depth of feelings between these two characters. Due East, Beasts and Campfire Feasts fell a bit flat for me and I thought it wasn’t as fun as previous books in the series, but that also might be due to my weird reading mood.
What did I cook for dinner this week?

I bought all of these, except Two Witches and a Whiskey which I got for review. Counting on You had been on my radar for a while and now that it was discounted to 99 cents I couldn’t resist grabbing it. Valiant Heart was recommended by an author I know in her newsletter, I liked the premise so I bought it. The Crystal Queen is the last book in this series I am enjoying, so I bought a copy on release day. Jeopardy in January looked and sounded like a fun cozie and I love the idea of a whole series set in the same town with a different main character in each book. Two Witches and a Whiskey I got for review and is the third book in this series, which I am really enjoying so far.
